Tremor

Either there has just been a small earthquake in the East Midlands or my house has very dodgy foundations. I blame global warming.

Update: I see from the comments that it was a quake. It seems relatively large for a British one.

Hi there, we've got it here in Notts as well - pretty far from Chester... A bit frightening;-)))

I felt it at 00:58 in Rugby. Had to check the house but it seems OK.

And here in East London.

I blame global warming.

Are you still alive?

On the edge of the Cotswolds at a few minutes to one. Seemed to last ten or fifteen seconds - enough to say to Susan 'it's an earthquake' while it was going on. We had one about six or seven years back but this was bigger. As if a giant had hold of the house and was gently shaking it to and fro. A few existing cracks in the ceilings of the shaky old part of our house seem larger and some clothes fell of a shelf in my daughters bedroom.

"Are you still alive?"

Yes although I am resorting to cannibalism in order to survive.

"As if a giant had hold of the house and was gently shaking it to and fro."

I thought for a couple of seconds that something like a small plane had crashed nearby.

Never noticed a thing here in South East London. Which just goes to show that even earthquakes are unwilling to go south of the river.
